If you’re not careful, a Bemidji-Cloquet matchup can often cause quite a bit of confusion. Now, it’s a match made in heaven.

The Lumberjacks of the two northern Minnesota cities have teamed up for a change, joining forces as they march through the Minnesota State High School League’s Nickname Challenge.

The tournament, comprised of 64 Minnesota high school nicknames, has whittled down to the top 16 after two rounds of voting on Twitter. And the Jacks are still dancing.

The Lumberjacks will be vying for an Elite 8 spot when voting resumes, which is now at a to-be-determined date in light of the death of George Floyd and ongoing protests in the Twin Cities. All scheduling, polls and results can be found on Millea’s Twitter profile at @MSHSLjohn.  https://twitter.com/PerhamWDCSports/status/1261730638798913536/photo/1
